Poole – Graffiti depicting far-right and antisemitic imagery has been painted onto an underpass in Poole.
The graffiti was found in the underpass to Asda, at the Ashdown Roundabout, on Tuesday afternoon.
It depicts a Nazi party logo and a slogan, as well as the logo of British far-right party the National Front.
Rabbi at the Bournemouth reform synagogue, Maurice Michaels, said that it was ‘frightening’ to see antisemitic graffiti in an area with a large Jewish community.
“It’s horrendous, really, to think that here in Bournemouth where the various faiths all work together closely and amicably, we should find that antisemitism has reared its ugly head again,” Rabbi Michaels said.
“It will make some members of the Jewish community afraid to put themselves around the place, because graffiti of this nature can so often lead to violence.
